Alianza Verde is a coalition of community gardens established in 2009 to promote urban greening initiatives including conservation, wildlife sanctuaries, healthy environments, and encourage community awareness.
In 2010 Alianza Verde organized the 1st Pilsen Paseo de Jardines. This tour included over 20 gardens highlighting spaces and styles of gardening throughout the neighborhood. AV will continue garden tours and projects that focus on green initiatives.
This year (2015) AV has created an event series, Pilsen Open Gardens- First Sundays, where you can come and discover your local community gardens. You can volunteer at each garden and participate in different workshops on these days. A donation of $5 is suggested. Make sure to stay for the potluck socials. For more information or if you are interested in joining the Pilsen Alianza Verde email us at email@example.com
Anyone who is a resident of Pilsen, interested in green spaces, gardening, recycling/reuse, conservation or community action is welcome!
